Thanks everyone!

Last day coming up and I just want to thank everyone who supported this project. Everybody who pledged, or shared something on their socials, it means the world honestly. I'm really passionate about promoting my beloved home city and can't thank you all enough for helping me to do that. Negotiations ahead now with the publisher to see if there's a will to get the book out there.

Good luck mate, its a fantastic project and I can see how much you care about Birmingham. I've love your writing and can't wait to see this on my shelf. If there's anything I can do to help apart from giving you a bucket of cash, let me know.

Thanks guys, and thanks for your generous support. I’ll be talking to the publisher when the dust has settled on Monday about where we go from here, but it looks promising.

Good luck Steve. The more books about Brum, the better. And Birmingham's music culture is incredibly important. Music from Brum influenced the music industry worldwide.
